Putting together a forum for area nonprofits to increase public awareness was discussed by members of the Chelsea Human Rights Commission at its July 5 meeting.

“We want to get their mission, vision, and to ask them about human rights as it relates to their organization, their clients, and the community at large,” said HRC member Dan Kaminsky, who asked about opening the forum to a wider group. “The population needing protection isn’t necessarily connected to anything.”

Other members suggested waiting until after the initial forum to reach out to a wider population. The hope is to schedule a forum in the fall.

Creating a questionnaire for those groups that attend the forum and for future use was also discussed by HRC members, who will individually come up with questions to share at the HRC’s next meeting on July 19.

HRC members continued to review by-laws using the Ann Arbor Human Right’s Commission’s by-laws as a guideline and making changes that apply to Chelsea. They hope to approve by-laws at their next meeting, after which the by-laws must be approved by the Chelsea City Council.

    As a private citizen, how does one get involved? How does one become a member?
